For those that follow collegiate hockey, the name Hobey Baker is familiar. His name graces the award for the outstanding collegiate hockey player. He was also a veteran and is being inducted into the Philadelphia Sports Hall of fame.

Hobart Amory Hare Baker will be inducted into the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame Thursday night with a host of far more recognizable names - Dick Allen, Leroy Kelly, Tug McGraw, Jersey Joe Walcott, Mike Quick.
He will not be at the Sheraton Society Hill, of course. Hobey Baker died 92 years ago, at 26, test-piloting a World War I fighter plane in the rainy skies above Toul, France.
